Expert Advice On How To Get Ahead

Managers light a fire under their people, while leaders light a fire inside their people.

The question, “How do I get ahead?” was asked of key US executives and the responses were reported on by Harvey MacKay.

Warren Buffett (CEO, Berkshire Hathaway) – “Follow your passions. Find someone you love. The truth is that so few people really jump on their jobs. You will get noticed if you really go for it.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg (CEO, Founder Dreamworks) – “I don’t think it matters how small or big the task is; if you can do it just a little bit better than what is expected, you will be noticed and rewarded.

Keith Wandell (CEO, Harley Davidson) – “Just stay true to your values and your principles.”

Helena Foulkes (President, CVS) – “So, I love to run. I like to run long distances and I think a lot of the time, making business decisions is like being a marathoner. You know what the finish line is that you really want but along the way it’s not always pure joy. There are really hard moments, but if you keep your eye on the prize, it’s part of what drives you to get there.”

John Gainor  (CEO, Dairy Queen) – “I think it’s very important that you don’t want work to be work. It has to be something you enjoy. And if you find that, you can build a great career and enjoy what you are doing. I think, equally as important, is that you need to treat every employee no differently than how you want to be treated. Every person in an organization or in a store – their job is critical.”

Meg Whitman (CEO, HP) – “Be clear what matters most. And what matters most is your family. There are trade-offs that you make. But remember at the end of the day that is probably the most important group of people in your lives, and that has been true for me from day one. Do something you love, given we spend so much time at work. If you find yourself in a company where you’re asked to do something that you don’t think is right or you’re feeling uncomfortable about the leadership and the direction of the company, run – do not walk, run – for the doors.”

Ginni Rometti (CEO, IBM) – “Never protect the past. If you never protect the past, I think you will be willing to advance to the new. And with that philosophy, someday you can let that go more easily.  Never define yourself as a product or by the competition either. If you live and define yourself by your product or competition, you will lose sight of you and the customer.”

Adam Goldstein (COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises) – “Try to stay in one place.  I realize it’s not very realistic, in today’s day and age. But there are so many advantages if you can have a long and fulfilling career at one place. The relationships you have with the people are very, very special.  Your knowledge of the business, the industry, the different departments, what’s going on in the company, the lingo – I find that very fulfilling.”

Kirk Kinsell (CEO, Loews Hotels and Resorts) – “Don’t take yourself seriously because no one else does. That points back to my leadership style. I often tell people my favorite subject is me. The reason why, is because I invest in myself and understand who I am because I strongly believe I can’t lead.  I can’t work on others unless I know myself.”

Mary Barra (CEO, GM) – “Do something you are passionate about; do something you love. If you are doing something you are passionate about, you are just naturally going to succeed, and when a lot of other things happen you will find yourself needing to worry less as you are happier.”

Eric Schmidt (CEO, Alphabet) – “Find a way to say yes to things…. A new country, to meet new friends, to learn something new. Yes is how you get your first job, and your next job, and your spouse and even your kids.”

Seems getting ahead is less about work and more about life.

Put them together = Winning and Happy

  35. I believe that avoiding refined foods could be the first step for you to lose weight. They will often taste very good, but refined foods have very little vitamins and minerals, making you eat more in order to have enough power to get through the day. If you’re constantly eating these foods, converting to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more strength while feeding on less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.
